This Week’s Gospel Message

Thursday, October 27th, 2022

This week’s Gospel message for Sunday, October 30th is from Luke 19:1-10.

“Jesus looked up and said, ‘Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today I must stay at your house.’ And he came down quickly and received him with joy…And Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house because this man too is a descendant of Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.’”

“Zacchaeus climbs a tree in order to see Jesus on his way to Jerusalem. Sometimes our ability to see the Lord is blocked and we struggle through life, losing our way, unaware that mercy and forgiveness are within reach. We are called to approach Jesus with humility and repentance, like Zacchaeus did, responding to Jesus with joy, and immediately expressing his contrition.” SOURCE: Pastoral Patterns, Autumn 2022
